  • Leigh Griffiths agrees new four-year deal

    Leigh Griffiths agrees new four-year deal

    By: Tony Connelly on 14 Sep, 2018 13:17

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that the club have secured the services of Leigh Griffiths for a further four seasons after the striker signed a new contract today (September 14).

    Griffiths put pen to paper on a new contract at Celtic Park this morning which will ensure the century Bhoy will remain in the Hoops until at least the summer of 2022.

    In an exclusive interview with Celtic TV, Griffiths spoke for the first time about his new deal.

    “I’m over the moon,” he said. “It’s been a long time coming, talks have been ongoing for a while and I’m glad to get it over the line.

    “The main aim is to be here for as long as I can, and for Celtic to have shown that faith in me to sign me for another four years makes me ecstatic.

    “From the moment I walked in the door here, this is where I wanted to be for the rest of my life. I’ve been here for three-and-a-half years already and to sign another four-year deal is great. I can’t wait for the future.

    “Celtic is a great club and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I had the opportunity to move but I wanted to stay and fight for my place. I’ve been rewarded with another deal and knowing that I’m going to be here for another four years is great.”

    The 28-year-old recently wrote himself into the Celtic history books when he scored his 100th goal in the Hoops during Celtic’s 3-0 win over FK Suduva two weeks ago which helped secure Celtic’s place in the group stages of the Europa League.

    John Hartson was the last Celt to reach the 100-goal mark back in 2005, but Griffiths insisted he was not dwelling on his achievement and was instead focused on try to bring more success to the club.

    “I’m here for the 10-in-a-row bid, but my main focus now is trying to get in the team and stay as fit as possible,” said the Scotland international. “I’ve hit the 100 now and I want to try and continue that and aim for greater heights.

    “There’s been a lot of high and some lows, but more highs than lows. Hopefully there’s more highs to come.

    “The Invincible season and the Double Treble season were some very good highlights and hopefully in the coming years there’s more to come.”
